    Hi Anna,welcome to TZ first of all.What kind of USB drive do you have?Pen,hard drive,cd or dvd?Did your drive come with usb drivers?If so install or reinstall them.Another thing I thought of is the version of your drive ie.(1.1 or 2.0)versus your computer's usb capabilities.If your machine is only capable of usb 1.1 then a usb 2.0 hardware device could make xp bluescreen or restart.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Are you able to test the drive in another PC, just to make sure its not defective ?
